Mum and Dad - Kaisercraft April Challenge

Morning all.
Yet another challenge completed, this time for Kaisercraft. The Mood Board was all about grey, brown,  cream, and licorice.
For the April challenge I have used their "Pen and Ink"  Collection as it suits perfectly.


Kaisercraft "Pen and Ink" Collection : " Etchings,  2 x Chandelier, Collectables and Sticker Sheet. Alphabet Dye,clock stamp and brown pearls

Starting with "Etching" reverse have cut 1/4" off the top leaving salvage intact. Next cut an 8" square from the middle as reverse side has butterflies which I will fussy cut later.
Using "" Chandelier" cut the salvage off. Then cut 1" off the right hand side. Then cut an 1"off the top.
Cut an oval shape from the second  piece of "Chandelier "reverse 5.6" x 4.58",
this will be the photo mat. Inked the photo mat with black Kaisercraft pen

Next to the step is all the fussy cutting:

From "Etching" cut six butterflies . Dye cut title using Kaisercraft alphabet dyes.
 Using "Chandelier " fussy cut the flowers cluster from bottom left included the time stamp, and all remaining flowers. All the cut edges are inked in Kaisercraft brown or black ink.
Stamped clock  underneath where the oval would sit, also stamped a few on the  off cuts of"Chandelier ".
At the top of "Chandelier" fussy cut around the small daisy as it  sits over the  photo frame.

Putting it all together :

Using the "Etching " reverse as my foundation I have placed the "Chandelier 1/2" from the top and left side ensuring the large flowers where at the top left and chandelier was bottom right. Layered photo mat {with foam tape} with the reverse of "Chandelier" facing out and ensuring previously cut around daisy would sit at top of photo frame.
I then Layered all my fussy cuts and collectibles around  {using foam tape} the oval leaving a space to add a hidden  journal tag which I have added string which was white but dipped it into tea to change colour (the tag has their names and the date and where the photo was taken). Placing extra flowers on top left and right which had preciously been cut from the "Chandelier" paper. Added words from the sticker sheet. Cut an oval from"Chandelier " reverse place it at bottom right hand corner to cover chandelier added butterfly to oval using foam tape. Added photo to oval. Added title and brown pearls.
